This earlier quote from Mickos made me smile: 

"MySQL freely admits that its database is totally different from the 
high-end offerings of IBM and Oracle. It's trying to be the Ikea of the 
database world: cheap, needs some assembly, but has a sleek, modern design 
and does the job. "If you are equipping some very fine room for your old 
relatives, maybe you buy antique furniture. But everyone else uses Ikea," 
Mickos says."
